It's hard to find someone who knows what she's doing and doesn't want to be found, at least in the sprawl of Seattle. This week, Kyle "Babysitter" Rogers meets up with three other Shadowrunners as they take on a job from the enigmatic troll "Jenkins" to track down a cybered-up missing operative who broke out of a Lone Star holding facility. Where's she hiding? And with no resources, what contacts might she have made to protect herself? And what's she running from in the first place?

Are you worried about gaming with your romantic partner? Or maybe you're looking for that special gamer out there for you? Or hae you found The One, but they're not into gaming? This special Valentine's Day edition of Gamer's Tavern addresses all your concerns about real-life relationships and tabletop gaming! Carrinn Seabolt, Bruce Cordell, and Torah Cottrill join us to talk about relationships.
Note: We were originally going to have Sean Patrick Fannon on this episode as well, but he was too busy to be on our show this week. I'd be upset, except that he was assisting the absolutely amazing charity Doctors Without Borders, and when one of your guests wants to help cure fucking diseases, you let him slide on bailing last minute on your podcast. Go check them out and, if you're able, please donate to the charity that is saving lives around the world.
And don't forget our contest! We're giving away an iPod Shuffle loaded with Gamer's Tavern episodes, plus a crapload of games!
